    i have read alot of good pricing stratigies. but i have a question. alot of you folks charge x amount up to like 12" then alittle more like on micks whos pricing and area is more like mine. he charges x amount x2 to 12" then 1 dollar an inch after that, thats great if you only get a few more inches but what happens when you get 2"-3' becuae around here we get alot of 12" storms some 2' foot storms and yes we even get 3'. like 3 years ago we got 2 in about a 3 week period. so i am just wondering how you charge for something like that? becuase thats alot of extra work and wear and tear but not much extra pay compared to a 12" storm.
    hope that makes sense.

    Charge for an 18" storm 2.5x, 24in storm 3x and keep going up .5x for every 6 inches. I agree $1 an inch is crazy.

    no way i could call 6" a blizzard here we get many storms of 8-18"
    a dusting around here is 2". thanks though. the 1.40 a minute sounds good.
